And the Mouse Shall Lead Them

I saw this picture today over at Wired Jesus Podcast and could not help but laugh.  What an image!!!  What was the artist thinking or saying with this piece?  It is a sculpture by Alexandre Kosolapov entitled  — “the hero.  the leader.  the god.”  And if you notice that Jesus really has taken the lead as his toes are just out ahead of Lenin’s shoe!!!  I can’t help but picture that after the next few steps you see Lenin and Jesus lifting up a thrilled Mickey off the ground and going “Wheeeeeee!”

Twinkies – Community – Longevity

26 03 2008

 

“There was an Alameda County study that tracked the lives of 7,000 people HostessTwinkiesover nine years. Researches found that the most isolated people were three times more likely to die than people with strong relational connections.
They found, moreover, that people who had bad health habits like smoking, poor eating habits, no exercise, alcohol use, and so on, people with bad health habits but strong social ties lived significantly longer than people who had great health habits—jogging and everything—but were isolated.
In other words, it is better to eat Twinkies with good friends than to eat broccoli alone.”

John Ortberg – from a recent sermon entitled, “The Power of Belonging”





Name That Band

7 02 2008

I love checking out the names of bands. The more unique and unusual the better. Think of the great names like —- The Smashing Pumpkins, They Might Be Giants, Rage Against the Machine, Six Pence None the Richer, Led Zeppelin…. Ever tried to come up with a great name? Well, here is your chance. Tony Morgan blogged about a fun way to not only pick a unique name for your band but to also name your first album and pick your album cover photo. Here’s how it works:

1. Band Name – The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

2. Album Title – The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

3. Album Cover Art – The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

I think my album is going platinum!

Discovering Your Inner Hero

2 10 2007

I was directed to this “Hero Quiz” from Kem Meyer’s blog. The quiz helps you discover which “Hero” you are most like. Apparently I am Peter. Here is a description of my results.

“David, you are Peter

You’re multitalented and pick up knowledge from others alarmingly fast. But be careful that you don’t take on too much, or your head might explode.”
